Political gravity looks to be catching up with the SNP

This is the latest instalment in the slow-burning story of how the Conservatives seem to be doing remarkably well in Scotland, building off their second-placed Holyrood finish last year.

If this poll is right, then not only are the Conservatives on 29 per cent – almost double their share at the last election – but they may be on the way to their best seats result since 1992, when they won 11 seats. Labour will be delighted to be on 25 per cent, not far short of second and well up on their mid-teens showing of recent times.

In terms of seats such figures would, the article claims, put the Tories on 12, Labour on 2, and the Liberal Democrats (polling at 4 per cent) on three. These 14 losses would take the Nationalist contingent down from 56 MPs to 42.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
